    What's up guys alot of reading but no writing! This is all aluminum and has a 2" ball on one side and a 2 & 5/16 on the other. What are your thoughts. I know that I have to change hitch sizes often. And you?

    It sure is pretty.. I guess that's why it cost so much?

    You can buy similar hitches at Walmart for 1/3 or less than that costs.

    I have never seen an adjustable hitch like this. The height adjustment up and down is (10) ten inches! Whos else make them?

    Very nice, however I am partial to our adjustable tri-ball hitch, even though it is not aluminum. It sticks out further, and was only $135. If you need a 10in drop, you're truck is probably too tall to be efficient in this business.

    We have solid steel ones down here that do the same thing just the pin goes through a hole instead of in front of a notch. I think that it costs more than it is worth. Unless you change balls everyday. I have one hitch has all three sizes on it. Welded on and also, a convert a ball. I really like it.

    I'm just looking for other options for quick change hitches. And as far as my truck being too tall to be efficient in the buisiness it's a 99 F-250 super duty with no lift kit just regular 4400 lb springs on each side. I think it's MORE than efficient.
